Jets. Yep looking forward to that. I do not mind it going the realistic route with the great story but they need to add stupid/ridiculous cheats for us to mess around with

That might not happen though considering that, this generation, cheats are going the way of the dinosaur. Choosing San Andreas as the setting is the best move they could have made with this game.

I just want RS to find a perfect spot between gta 4 and some of the older gta games with their unique craziness

I don't want another all serious tone where you have to go to drinking games with your buddies or set up dates in a internet cafe

please give us the RPG elements of GTA:SA along with planes,jet packs etc,,,,

also the world should be huge like Just cause 2 and leave some islands off the map for us to find on our own

I think we can expect a gameinformer issue to have GTA 5 on the cover pretty soon
I thought the Ballad of Gay Tony had the right blend of craziness and realism. Do that again rockstar, with a new story, set in an updated San Andreas.

You can buy houses.
Hookers are back
Lots of minigames.
Heavily modified engine.
The gameplay will be more sandbox, kind of like GTA San Andreas, because it looks like they’re bringing back several mini games and places like gyms etc.

Some of that.
Ranich  +   980d ago
@thehitman (#3.1.1):

Where do you get "lots of minigames" and "you can buy houses" from the trailer? It simply showed a house getting foreclosed, that doesn't necessarily mean you can buy houses again. And where did you see that there's lots of minigames?
SephirothX21  +   980d ago
The trailer was meant to hint at what is in the game. Everything in that trailer is there for a purpose. To summarise the trailer. GTA V will take the best from GTA IV and San Andreas and put them together. Its the GTA many people wanted IV to be. So therefore houses, planes, minigames, vehicle customisation, jets, mountains and countryside mixed with more realistic physics, better driving, better shooting and better multiplayer. Oh and hookers! What more could you want?

I don't see how the trailer was boring. It was short and full of action and revealed quite a bit about the game.

After watching the trailer and then watching a video of Tommy Vercetti on youtube, they sound almost the same with the new one sounding older. Listen carefully around 0:15 in the trailer and then compare it to the voice in the first few seconds of the vid.

Agreed. It does sound awfully similar. Before I even read any comments here I was thinking that I had heard that voice before, and I think you nailed it.

Would be really cool if they explored Tommy Vercetti again.

I don't know where people are getting that Irish or Hispanic origin from. He sounds nothing like a Latino or an Irishman.

I still can't get over how detailed the environments are this time around. Truly amazing.

that trailer sucked it was missing an important factor that maid it look generic I almost fell asleep, the narrator sounded like he was telling a bed time story.

Overall I give this trailer a 2/10, it was just really boring.

EDIT: Its not an Irish accent its a Hispanic dude.

Well if it's coming out for 360 and PS3, what more could they do with outdated hardware? It's a sandbox game for one, so it can only look so good on the hardware that runs it. Can't blame Rockstar for that.

They would have been better of calling it GTAIV (add subtitle here) because even with the graphical update, like you said it's really 4.5.

Well, for reasons you already stated and just going by what Ive seen so far.
poindat  +   980d ago
No... This game has no relation to GTA IV, therefore it is a whole new game and deserves a whole new title. If they used your idea, then it would be an expansion like TBOGT, which it obviously is not.

Graphics aren't the only things that make a sequel. There's obviously going to be some pretty massive gameplay improvements to justify it.

Use your brain, sheesh.
Trenta27  +   980d ago
It's a teaser trailer. It's not a launch trailer with all the bells and whistles. It's just showing you whats up. I, personally, loved it. It was rather boring, but in each scene it showed us something new that it's doing. The jets, massive highways, blimps, dogs, mountains. It'll be glorious.

Disagree with setting it in SA again before doing another Vice city. Now there goes the chance of a SA stories on the vita. So if they make a vita game they should set it in Vice city again but a whole new map. I just hope GTA 5 controls are better and that they dont use the gta4/RDR shooting and running mechanics. Oh and large map also please if you have to release 5 discs for the xbox

I don't know how the hell Rockstar did it, but Los Santos looks even more intricately detailed than GTA IV's Liberty City. The trailer just goes to show how many light years ahead of every other open world developer Rockstar truly is. GTA V looks like a next gen game compared to the competition.
modesign  +   980d ago
its not that hard to take a previous game and add to it. update, look at the EIenhancers to the GTA4 mod.
vortis  +   980d ago
I have to disagree about Santos looking more intricate. It looks more like San Andreas than GTA IV. Obviously they were showing off the PC version with slight shader enhancement (and to maintain framerates).

But GTA IV's Liberty City was the most intricately designed game I've ever played. Every single square inch seemed to be packed and felt very, very alive.

From what they showed GTA V looks more like a skin-job than what GTA IV was to San Andreas. I'm not just talking about graphics but the actual aesthetics. But that's just what I gather from the teaser. The original GTA IV teaser seemed to show more city density and visual depth.

Also, modesign is right, with the IceEnhancer GTA IV looks better than that GTA V teaser (graphically). But a real comparison can't be done until until an ENB mod releases for GTA V.

over on IGN they are saying it looks like all the old characters are back and have aged since their respective games were out, and they will all be probably playable.

Buljo  +   980d ago
Here it goes again, a trailer every few months which reveals almost nothing but short clips of how awesome the game is, hyping it up beyond reason and then waiting day by day for the game to be released. That's what GTA means to me - suffering until the game is finally released. Then all of a sudden, childish happiness when I start it up. 2012 seems so far away..

I think Rockstar should have left America entirely and gone with a more exotic location like Brazil. Either way, I'm tired of sandbox games. Real-life is challenging enough.
vortis  +   980d ago
What happened to London? Really?

Rockstar seems to have forgotten how much we loved GTA: London. And why was that a real-life place and not something like GTA: Eurodon or GTA: United Brighton or something?
